The programme is designed to be flexible and integrate learning already available within the Cardiff School of Health Sciences, and other universities. The integration of the programme for the individual will be focused by the individual learner's needs. This approach fosters interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary learning, which encourages best practice, innovation and cross-fertilisation. Participants may undertake modules offered at other Universities to meet their individual learning needs, provided that the modules are approved by Cardiff Metropolitan University.
The core elements of the programme of studies will be delivered by the Cardiff School of Health Sciences at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
There are three core components for the MSc:
- Work Based Learning (Two Professional Practice Modules - 20 credits each)
- Research methods module (Applied Research Methods and Design (20 credits)
- Dissertation (60 credits)
In addition, students will select a further 60 credits from suitable modules in the Cardiff School of Health Sciences (or other universities), depending on their individual learner needs.
